Conveniently situated in the centre of Dublin and created from four Georgian townhouses, The Merrion's stunning restored interiors feature impressive touches, such as a neo-classical staircase that sweeps into the reception area and elegant drawing rooms furnished with fine antiques and an impressive collection of art, with floor-to-ceiling Georgian windows opening onto the lovely terrace and gardens. Furthermore, in a bid to preserve the building's integrity, the architects and interior designers have created distinctly individual guest rooms and suites - no two are alike. Guests have the choice of two dining venues - including the only two Michelin Star restaurant in Ireland, Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud, as well as an extensive wine selection housed in the original 18th century wine vault. Tethra Spa, meanwhile, is the perfect sanctuary retreat where you can unwind and restore, and features treatment rooms, a gym and a gorgeous indoor swimming pool. The Merrion is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World.

City Life

Dublin is a city with bucketloads of character and friendly, engaging locals; Dublin people certainly make entertaining hosts, while the city itself is vibrant, fun and sociable. Considered a youthful city, due to its density of younger inhabitants, it is also flushed with history - Dublin Castle, built in 1204, is rich in Irish heritage, whereas 21st century architecture, such as Ian Ritchie's Monument of Light, has a contemporary vibe. Temple Bar is commonly known as the Cultural Quarter, brimming with street performers, music venues and cosy Irish pubs full to bursting. Here, you will also find good restaurants, many bars and pubs and traditional Irish folk music. The Guinness Storehouse remains a popular tourist attraction and details the company's history, recipes and advertising campaigns. There is also a bar with 360-degree views of Dublin and it is here you will receive your complimentary pint of Guinness, complete with a shamrock in its foam.

Health & Fitness

In addition to the eighteen metre indoor swimming pool and a gym equipped with all the latest machinery (with the added bonus of a personal training service), Tethra Spa offers a range of bodycare and beauty treatments using ESPA and Darphin products.

Weddings & Honeymoons

A bespoke wedding service is offered at The Merrion to ensure every couple’s dream day is simply perfect.
